Meet Our Provider Allison Wendt
I believe we can all access the wisdom we need to heal, and that healing is a unique and personal experience to each person.
My role is to hold a supportive, compassionate space for your healing to unfold, and to help you integrate what you learn from psychedelic medicine into your everyday life. Often healing involves increasing our capacity to hold painful feelings in a safe way, and learning to acknowledge and work with parts of ourselves that we might consider unacceptable. My outlook is that we’re not sick or broken as individuals, but have sometimes learned from and adapted to our surrounding environments in ways that might have become harmful to us, or we get hijacked by trauma. I believe true healing comes about when we restore a loving connection to all parts of ourselves, each other, and our environment. Self-compassion can be a struggle for many of us, and healing is a process. In my experience, psychedelic medicine can boost this process in a profound way, giving us new perspectives, spiritual awareness and tools to carry through our lives. As a therapist, I will respectfully support you wherever you find yourself on this challenging and empowering journey.
I hold a Master’s degree in Systems Psychology and have been trained in EMDR, one method of reprocessing traumatic memory. Before going into private practice, I worked in community mental health, in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I also studied visual arts and taught yoga. I live in a cabin by the beach and like to spend my free time learning how to garden, in spiritual practice, or with friends and family.
